Legendary 12 Jan. 2013
By Janeen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had no idea who Kamau Brathwaite was before my freshman composition class! I must say, however, that he is definitely one of the best Caribbean writers I've read yet!

A book all people should read 2 Feb. 2000
By Robin Land - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an wonderful collection of verse. I recomend it to any one looking for a connection between the African-American / African-Caribbean experience. My only suggestion is find the book Pathfinder: Black Awakening in the Arrivants to help you a long. This work has many allusions that may not be easy to understand to the average reader.

The Arrivants : A New World Trilogy 30 April 2000
By Sandro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is for anyone who likes to learn something about another culture's experience. Some useful topics to research beforehand might include African drum language, treatment of black slaves in the early history of the Caribbean, and voodoo. Even if research isn't for you there is enough wisdom and observation within Brathwaite's poetry which make The Arrivants a valuable addition to the literature lover's collection. Old British standards like "the Queen's English" are reinvented as Brathwaite will take you through a reaquaintance with culture in the name of identity. Included within is a glossary of most of the unfamiliar terms, making the reading extremely accessible.
The array of messages developed in the poetry allowing us the rare opportunity to understand the world through the eyes of a poet whose homeland is in the Caribbean, are both innovative as poetry and invaluable as a written history -- a Caribbean history which, while developed from past events, shows how interwoven we all are as humanity. The Arrivants will play "the Korabra" with your mind.
